Bathroom etiquette

There are three stalls and three sinks in a bathroom. The middle stall is occupied by person A. Person B enters the bathroom and chooses the closest stall. Now person A is heading to the sink.
Do they:

a) pick sink closest to the exit
b) pick the corresponding sink to the stall which they used
c) none of the above, who needs to wash their hands anyways

Is it just me that thinks middle stall = middle sink? And why does this bother me?

Don't even get me started on people who don't wash their hands.

It's just you. The sink is unrelated to the stall. Sometimes there are more sinks, sometimes more stalls, sometimes they are perpendicular. Sometimes there are urinals.

I usually pick the cleanest sink.

I don't get it. Just why does that bother you? It seems to be totally unrelated. Now the fact that Bush is president and a moron with a corrupt staff that should bother you.

yeah, yeah, yeah whatever.

If # stalls = # sinks then use the stinkin' sink that corresponds to your stall!!***

***This does not apply to restrooms with urinals, places where # stalls does not equal # sinks, or outside of the continental U.S.

I'm gonna have to completely agree with Courtney on this one. I share the exact same thought process (isn't that scary?)

Now, answer me this: why do so many people use the handicapped stall as their first choice?

I never use the handicapped stall - not because I want to save it for someone who is actually handicapped, but because it's just too big. I feel completely exposed in a handicapped stall. I feel like I might as well be sitting in the middle of a conference room, handing out tickets to whomever might like to see me doin' my business.
